About this item

A GIRAFFE AND A HALF is turning 50! We’re celebrating by bringing back a full color version of the original cover and a gold foil, embossed sticker!

Only at Target: With the World of Shel Silverstein Poster inside the Jacket!

If you had a giraffe
and he stretched another half...

you would have a giraffe and a half.

And if you glued a rose

to the tip of his nose...

And...if he put on a shoe

and then stepped in some glue...

And if he used a chair

to comb his hair...

And so it goes until...but that would be telling. Children will be kept in stitches until the very end, when the situation is resolved in the most riotous way possible.

Delightfully zany rhymes about a giraffe who accumulates some ridiculous things--like glue on his shoe and a bee on his knee--only to lose them again, one by one. "Infectiously funny . . . a good nonsensical text and illustrations."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.
